finally ,someone in hollywood stood up and said the truth about the situation in iraq.

director brian de palma who is no stranger to controversial issues shocked the audeince in venice film festival when he represented his new film "redacted" that tells the true story of the rape and murder of 14 years old abeer alganabi on the hands of 5 american soldiers.

the 66 years old director siad that " The movie is an attempt to bring the reality of what is happening in Iraq to the American people"

he also talked in a recent interview about how amazed he was with the similarities between the iraq war and vietnam which tackled in other films like "casualities of war".

thanks for this film palma , can't wait to see it in thatre.

there is another interesting film about US/Irak at the Venice film festival - In the Valley of Elah:

after we've see the whole truth - which could be seen long before - it is now a subject in films and subject to commercialisation ...

there is a proverb on "American" (business) politics and moral:
sell it, bann it, bomb it ...

don't want to generalise - it always needs a differentiated look
